How to Do Nothing by Jenny Odell

Review ★★★★

This book certainly raises some interesting (and necessary) points regarding anti-productivity sentiment, I found myself growing less fond of the ideas as the book progressed. I ended up re-reading this one and I think fundamentally I don't actually want to do nothing, I just want a reminder that information and productivity should be balanced with contemplation and reflection. A decent book overall, would recommend.
